In this episode of the terribly odd series Flash Gordon, we learn of a planet called Kares, or something like that, where Bad is Good! Good is Bad! the space commission sends a representative to check things out, but he is kidnapped, and forced into um, a strobing chair.. Now he is bad! And he's instructed to kill Flash Gordon! Oh Noes!
All of this is plain odd. The planet looks like it was decorated by a six year old. the alien costumes are just strange, the actors are pretty odd themselves (especially the guy playing the space rep) and the acting is sometimes laughable. Check out when Flash defeats his former friend, and Dale shrieks out with "FLASH I DON'T UNDERSTAND! WHY WAS HE TRYING TO KILL YOU?"
Interesting that this whole series was filmed in West Berlin. Which would explain the accents all the bad guys have...
